5:20pm
more to the south. and then as we head throughout tomorrow morning, we're just going to be left with a few residual showers. then eventually some sunshine in here as we head throughout your thursday afternoon. so the heaviest rain is from about now throughout the overnight hours where we could see about a tenth to a quarter inch of rainfall. and overall the north bay is expected to get most of it here from about 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. tonight. as far as your daytime highs go on thursday, upper 60s and also low 70s. and your three-day forecast has temperatures warming up by saturday to mid and upper 70s. and then as we head throughout sunday, yes, some 80-degree temperatures coming our way. so we do get a warm-up in here. and maybe even another storm close by as we head throughout wednesday night of next week. so north bay not great there, but for the east and south bay trick-or-treaters, not too bad tonight. >> still in luck. thanks, jeff. and we fall back this weekend. >> that's right. still to come at 5:00, helping children through one of
